Description
Information
Ethan is a young hero on a quest through the strange world of American Fairy.

Since baseball is the favourite game of American fairies, or 'ferishers' as the North American Fairy Folk call themselves, this is necessarily a story of baseball too.

Zeppelins, werefoxes, Indians and Indian mythology, sasquatches, wendigos, Alaska, the haunted, 161-year-old husk of George Armstrong Custer, and a boy who thinks he's an android also figure in the action.

Along the way, the hero and heroine find themselves and each other; a band of Ferishers triumphs over their ancient enemy and finally find some new to play baseball against; a widower's heart will heal as his airship conquers the Northern sky; and a burnt-out Colombian slugger named Rodrigo Buendia will find redemption in discovering, with Ethan Feld and Jennifer T. Rideout, the true nature of heroism.
